Genetical genomics is a strategy for mapping gene expression variation to expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs). We performed a genetical genomics experiment in four functionally distinct but developmentally closely related hematopoietic cell populations isolated from the BXD panel of recombinant inbred mouse strains. This analysis allowed us to(More)
Genetical genomics aims at identifying quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for molecular traits such as gene expression or protein levels (eQTL and pQTL, respectively). One of the central concepts in genetical geno-mics is the existence of hotspots [1], where a single polymorphism leads to widespread downstream changes in the expression of distant genes, which(More)
Extracts of methanol-grown cells of Amycolutopsis rndkanolica and Mycubacterium gastri oxidized methanol and ethanol with concomitant reduction of NJV " 'dimethyl-4-nitrosoaniline (NDMA), Anion-exchange chromatography revealed the presence of a single enzyme able to catalyse this activity in methanol-or ethanol-grown cells of M. gastri. A. methanolica,(More)
Hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell (HSPC) traits differ between genetically distinct mouse strains. For example, DBA/2 mice have a higher HSPC frequency compared with C57BL/6 mice. We performed a genetic screen for micro-RNAs that are differentially expressed between LSK, LS(-)K(+), erythroid and myeloid cells isolated from C57BL/6 and DBA/2 mice. This(More)
Clonal tracking of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) has proven valuable for studying their behavior in murine recipients. Now in Cell Stem Cell, Kim et al. (2014) and Wu et al. (2014) extend these analyses to nonhuman primates, providing insights into dynamics of HSPC expansion and lineage commitment following autologous transplantation.
We combined large-scale mRNA expression analysis and gene mapping to identify genes and loci that control hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) function. We measured mRNA expression levels in purified HSCs isolated from a panel of densely genotyped recombinant inbred mouse strains. We mapped quantitative trait loci (QTLs) associated with variation in expression of(More)
The molecular mechanism responsible for a decline of stem cell functioning after replicative stress remains unknown. We used mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) and hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to identify genes involved in the process of cellular aging. In proliferating and senescent MEFs one of the most differentially expressed transcripts was Enhancer(More)
